Medium 2 ' - Plant 14" apart. Zone 3-9 A German hybrid that flowers from summer to early fall. Irresistible to butterflies. Excellent fresh cut flowers or dried. Remove spent blossoms to promote continuous flowering. Soft yellow flowers that blend well with others, especially nice alongside blue and silver tones.

I find this plant very invasive. It's still trying to take over a bed two years after I thought I'd dug it all out.
